Uruguay to make marijuana legal in trailblazing gamble
Montevideo (AFP) - Uruguay is to give a green light Tuesday to making marijuana legal, in a social experiment that countries plagued by drug-related crime worldwide will watch."It is going to be a history-making day. This puts Uruguay squarely in the forefront of changing policy-making and strategies," said Senator Luis Gallo of the Broad Front.The plan was unveiled a year and a half ago by President Jose Mujica along with other measures aimed at ending crime and violence associated with the drug trade.
Awesome. Shall be interesting to see a "live experiment" progress in real time.
